Scaled back design from patent

We were hoping for this lens which had 20 elements in 13 groups including 6 ED and 3 Fluorite lens elements.

Instead this lens is a cheaper design with 16 elements in 10 groups.But they are still charging $1k for it. That will be a tough sell as I don't know if there will be enough IQ improvement over the AFS 70-300 to justify the cost difference.
